You can always tell when it’s getting close to Halloween because there’s candy everywhere, right?

I don’t go all out with the Halloween decorations, but it’s fun to create new ones each year. And the kids love helping out, which means fun times! This pumpkin candy dish may be the easiest Halloween craft ever. It literally takes only a few minutes to create AND it serves as a cute decoration too, bonus! 

Here are the supplies and the instructions you’ll need:


 Pumpkin Candy Dish Tutorial


  • glass bowls*
  • permanent marker
  • candy corn or other small fall candies
  • green ribbon

*You can find small glass bowls just about anywhere. I found these at the Dollar Store, but I’ve also seen them at the craft stores. One of the bowls has a rim, so I added some green ribbon as an accent. This step is completely optional, but it adds a nice pop of color, especially since there’s a lot of orange here!


  1. Wash the bowls, and dry completely.
  2. Use a permanent marker to draw faces on the bowls.
  3. Attach a green ribbon to the top of bowl (optional).
  4. Fill with candy.
  5. Enjoy!


We love candy corn, but those little candies are slightly addicting. Whenever I set candy corn out in a dish it seems to disappear practically overnight! I can’t wait to see just how long these little pumpkin candy bowls will stay filled!

Happy Halloween!!
